A slow-moving storm system and lots of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico may combine to produce heavy rain across much of the Northland starting Wednesday afternoon and continuing through Thursday.

The National Weather Service in Duluth reports that total rainfall of 2 to 3 inches is possible from Hinckley and Moose Lake, up through the Twin Ports and north to the Iron Range and the Arrowhead.

"We have a strong southerly flow and a low-pressure system approaching the area, and the Gulf of Mexico is wide open, allowing a lot of moisture to come up our way," Weather Service meteorologist Mike Stewart said Tuesday afternoon.

Stewart said there's a chance of some severe storms over Northwestern Wisconsin on Thursday. However, stronger storms may develop elsewhere in the region, too. Check back to duluthnewstribune.com for updates on the forecast.
